Alstom has delivered Sydneys first metro trains as part of the Sydney Metro Northwest project which is Stage 1 of Sydney Metro, Australias biggest public transport project. Sydney is the first city in Australia to implement a fully-automated metro system, providing a world-class, modern transport solution to meet the needs of the growing city when services start in the first half of 2019.

The first three of 22 six-car trains have been delivered to the Sydney Metro Trains Facility at Rouse Hill and are being tested over the coming months. The 5.2 billion Sydney Metro Northwest project is Stage 1 of the Sydney Metro project. The new system will provide a high level of service, with a train every four minutes in the peak in each direction. Services will extend into the city in 2024 and will have an ultimate capacity of a metro train every two minutes in each direction under the city.

"We are extremely proud to be able to deliver another first for Sydney with our latest and most innovative automated metro technology," said Mark Coxon, Managing Director for Alstom in Australia and New Zealand. This train and associated technologies will transform Sydney and provide a step change in the citys public transport capability and reliability, said Mr. Coxon.

Designed uniquely for Sydney by Alstom teams globally, the trains demonstrate Alstoms leadership in urban mobility. Customers have been placed at the heart of the development of this new train with the emphasis towards greater on-board mobility and comfort. 

The trains include three double-doors per side in each car for improved access and passenger flows, large windows and ambient LED lighting. The trains will offer the highest levels of customer safety including constant CCTV monitoring, emergency intercoms and the latest way-finding aids for customer information and real time travel information. 

The system will operate Alstoms world leading computer based train control system (CBTC), Urbalis 400, which minimises the time stopping at stations and the times between each service ensuring a comfortable and reliable journey for all customers.
